This is a commonly held belief that you should not clean windows when it rains. This is because people think ‘the rain will just make them dirty again'. Is this really a fact?

The simple answer is 'no'. We agree; in parts of Europe and the UK many people avoid having their windows washed when it rains. However it is normal practice in America for window cleaners to work in all weather except storms and high winds. So is there a good reason for the differences in practice?

Windows need cleaning because they are dirty; not because they get wet. When chimneys were belching out smoke it probably made sense. This is because the rain drops would pick up dirt and smoke particles from the air. However since the Clean Air Act came in, that situation has changed. Nowadays the three major causes of dirty windows are dust, pollen and droppings. If these are present on the window glass when it rains, the residue in the rain attaches itself to the dirt and can often make the windows look worse. When the windows is clean the rain will simply runs off and the glass continues to remain clean.
